  2. José Neves's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    As with Leone, the western is revisited via an abstract formal amplitude but with an unexpected silent derivation, underscored by a soundtrack that is both jazzy and Morricone like. The protagonist has a kamikaze moral dimension, an ethic of resilience as with Melville's "samurai", and like this director, we have a dry and direct look, with a quick flowing editing that allows an absence of psychology, pure reason.

  3. patchwork's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    un classico della Nikkatsu Corporation è un riuscitissimo mix giapponese di noir americano e spaghetti western. Film di genere puro, visivamente curatissimo e con una parte finale strepitosa, tale da far soprassedere sulle incongruenze varie e sul fatto che abbiano scelto per protagonista uno con improbabili guance flaccide, forse nella vana speranza di emulare un bogart con gli occhi a mandorla.

    I can sing a love song to this film.

  6. Joseph Abraham's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    a brilliant crime film that is compelling and stylsih. Jo Shishido is at his best as the uber-cool hitman who is hunted by the mob. I've written a film article on this film on my Japanese Samurai and Yakuza blog: onimasa.blogspot.com

  7. Mathieu Langlois's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    Joe Shishido had the best cheeks in all of Japan.

  8. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    A Nikkatsu classic best viewed in a theatre. Perhaps my appreciation for this film is reinforced by the score and the ending. One of my favourites from Criterion's Nikkatsu Eclipse set, though I may prefer Cruel Gun Story, if asked to choose just one.

  9. commonwastrel's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    The last 10 minutes might possibly kick too much ass.

  16. Erik Villasenor's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    really cool film, but the love story felt unnecessary.

  17. anafranca's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    I agree with you all. Soundtrack is also great.

  18. Alex Delarge's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    Haven't we hear this score before? I know it's indicitive of Morricone but I believe I've hear it used as homage in another film....Tarantino perhaps? This is a great film and can't wait to check out the rest of the Nikkatsu Noir set!

  20. dBainy's rating of the film A Colt Is My Passport

    Japanese western. Predictable Hollywood like ending, but unique twist of events. paradox of honor in war. ultimate contradiction, triumph is through unpredictability and stealth.
